There are many sections in the museum, with a particular collection dedicated to Arabian camels, which were once found in the San Rossore estate. Amongst the more classic pieces, there are the excellently-preserved skeletons of animals who live in the Mediterranean scrub and a dense collection of skulls, with bones of various species and breeds.
The museum’s many preparations, made for studying veterinary anatomy, include cardio-circulatory, digestive, genital and respiratory systems, as well as limbs, placentas and fetuses. A special display case, highlighted with a different colour than the others, is dedicated to teratological anatomy, which contains embalmed and stuffed animals with deformities.
To make the museum accessible to everyone, a special guide is available, used with QR codes, so visitors can explore the exhibition with modern technology and move independently through the space.
